Susquehanna Finishes Fifth in Landmark President’s Trophy

TOWSON, Md. – Susquehanna University finished fifth in the final 2014-15 Landmark Conference President’s Trophy standings.

SU, which won the trophy last academic year, finished with an average score of 7.30. Catholic won the trophy with its average of 8.08, followed by Moravian (8.06), Scranton (7.72) and Elizabethtown (7.30).

The Presidents’ Trophy was created in the inaugural year of the conference to recognize the best overall athletics program. The Trophy is awarded based on a formula that rewards institutions for regular season conference standings as well as results in Landmark postseason competition.

The point structure was revised this summer with different point hierarchies for team and individual sports, but the maximum number of points any team can earn is 14. The total number of points each institution earns is divided by the number of Landmark sports sponsored to determine the average.

Susquehanna won its only Landmark title of the year in women’s swimming as the Crusaders captured their fifth-straight title.
